Dear Peter Dunne,

Please do not cut school children’s access to National Library books.

The service is vital for educating our school children. Last year, 16,000 teachers made 40,000 requests for almost a million hard-copy items via the Curriculum Topic Support Service.

Please reconsider your plans in light of the huge opposition to your proposed cuts, which includes the School Library Association of New Zealand, and thousands of parents, grandparents and teachers - many of whom have signed this letter below.

Thank you,

Signed by 24486 New Zealanders.
